This minor type of restorative dentistry is used to correct tooth decay and halt its progression before it becomes an even more serious problem. The good news is that this tooth decay remedy is straightforward and relatively quick to do. Our office uses only porcelain and composite resin for fillings because they are as durable as they are beautiful. Most patients can’t even tell they have a filling from looking at their own reflection in the mirror – gone are the days of strikingly obvious metal fillings.
Our office typically following the following steps to fix a cavity or chip in your tooth:
- Numbing medicine to prevent pain
- Tooth decay removal
- Bonding agent applied
- Material application is hardened with a light
- Shaping, smoothing, and polishing of the new filling
